Need a DME or EGS flash update?

I'll update your MS43 or MS45 DME or automatic transmission (EGS) firmware to the lastest for free using WinKFP. I've done about 15 of these for various friends and forum members. A lunch would be nice but not required. I'm in Riverside. PM me to set it up.

Im in. Any way I could check for my existing software numbers with PA Soft?

Edit: Also anything specific for MS45 ZHP?

Yes, run PA Soft 1.4, let it come up with the initial screen that displays the car details, then close it down. Then open its log file in Notepad and scroll down to the section where you see the assembly number for your DME. It's a seven-digit number usually starting with 7. Post that number here and I can look up what the latest version for your car should be.

This is an excerpt from my PA Soft log file. The DME and EGS versions are in bold.

I do believe ZHP's have different firmware than a normal 330, since the cams are different, etc.

Yep. I see now that your DME is already at the latest version. I missed that second UIF entry earlier today.

Road trip?

There are a few youtube videos out there. Here is one of a Russian guy doing a bench update so you can see WinKFP in action.



And another very simple update.

I haven't tried, but watching that youtube video he has a power supply, the DME, EWS, and maybe some other stuff all wired up. TerraPhantm has stated on this forum that he can bench update so maybe PM him?

Went up there yesterday for the EGS update. First thing, if you are lowered, be very very careful getting to the location. Dragged my reinforcement plate over a few of the bumps. Other than that, OP is a great guy and the job only took about 15 minutes. The difference in my trans is night and day. Better shifts from high rpm, quicker throttle response, and a ton of overall refinement. I drive quite hard so I notice all the tiny things a regular driver might not see, but the EGS update is extremely worth the time. Thanks again!

Thanks for the kind words. Always glad to help out a fellow forum member. CarbonZHP has one nice E46! Yeah, those speedbumps on my street are a royal bitch, the main reason I really can't lower my cars.

I can also set up your Windows laptop with BMW Standard Tools 2.12 (INPA, WinKFP, NCS Expert, etc.), and the latest daten files, and if you have a K-CAN cable we can test it on your car to verify it works properly. I will create another thread for that soon.

Yeah that would be great. There aren't any good up to date threads on setting that up.

Hey Zman, I work in Irvine and commute every day on the train. If you're not too far away, maybe a house call? You can PM me your contact info and we can figure something out. All I need is my laptop and cable, so it's pretty portable.
